Leeds United in transfer tussle with Aston Villa for Premier League winger

Published

on

Leeds United and Aston Villa are some of the clubs eyeing a transfer swoop for Fulham winger, Floyd Ayite according to TEAMtalk. 

It has also been reported that both clubs are battling with West Brom and Middlesbrough to strike a deal for the winger who has rarely featured for Fulham this season.

But Ayite isn’t the only Fulham player that looks set to be heading for the exit door, with Stefan Johansen and Neeskens Kebano also being linked with a move to one of the promotion chasing sides.

The 30-year-old has made just seven substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, and it will come as no surprise to see him being linked with a move away from the club this month.

Ayite played his part in Fulham’s promotion winning campaign last year and could be a useful addition for any side in the Championship this season if he was to make a move.

Fulham boss, Claudio Ranieri has told Ayite that he is one of the players that can leave the club, and this development should tempt a number of clubs into making a formal offer for the pacy wide-man.

But with just days until the transfer window closes, clubs will have to make their moves at the earliest of opportunities to strike a deal for the out-of-favour Togo international.

The Verdict: 

This would be exactly what Aston Villa and Leeds need going forward.

Ayite caused full-backs all sorts of problems last season for Fulham and he would be an excellent signing.

I’d say there is more of a guarantee of first-team football at Leeds as he could fill the void left by Samuel Saiz, but as I say, he’d be a fantastic signing for whichever Championship club he ends up at.
